Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Office Corporate Vice President Kirk Koenigsbauer will discuss "the changing nature of collaboration and how we can empower every team to achieve more," according to the company. There will also be unnamed "special guests" at the event.
The invitation to the two-hour event that day doesn't spell out the specifics of what will be discussed beyond team collaboration. It ends with "How can we empower every team to achieve more?"
I'm also thinking Microsoft could provide a glimpse of some other "OfficeNext" futures, specifically around the business/commercial side of Office, at this event. Microsoft launched its latest Office 2016 and server complements over the past year or so.
I'm thinking the November 2 event might be more about the core Office/Office 365 Commercial products, rather than things like Evoke. But since Microsoft officials aren't commenting beyond the invitation itself, none of these guesses on my part are anything but guesses.
